Is My Fat AFAB Body Triggering You?
To me, masculinity is big.
Big, strong, broad, loud,
Aggressive. There are many ways
That aggression can be expressed
Including all the non-violent ones
Like poetry lmfao, and also
I don’t understand what it is about
Trans people that for whatever reason
They don’t want to include anyone
That doesn’t fit into their picture
Of what the community is, and whatever they think
Will be respected by “cis people”
Whoever, and whatever the fuck those are.
Is my fat afab body somehow
I thought so.
It’s time we acknowledge
A full spectrum of perspective–
Not everyone who’s trans is
A skinny vegan liberal, and that version
Is not more progressive
Than any other version of anything.
I still see Laurel Hubbard
As one of the most inspiring women in the community
However it is a far cry from progress
When you get to set so many records
And break so many barriers
By not even placing.
We need more Laurel Hubbard(s), we need
More trans bodies that don’t fit
The public’s idea
Of how trans people supposedly to want to be–
